ICC T20 Rankings: How are ICC player rankings measured?

  • A batter gets more runs for runs scored in the second inning. But there is value in half a century and a century.
  • If a player scores a run at a difficult time for the team, they get more ranking points.
  • In a low-scoring match, a batter gets more rating points than a high-scoring match.
  • A batter gets more runs if he scores the highest score for the team and the team wins the game.
  • He will also get a bonus point if it is against a strong team.
  • Players get a bonus point for non-outs.

ICC T20 ranking: How can Suryakumar Yadav dethrone Babar Azam?

  • Babar Azam is the current leader with 818 points while Suryakumar Yadav is close 2nd with 816 points.
  • Babar Azam’s next T20 assignment will be in the 2022 Asian Cup.
  • Suryakumar Yadav can overtake Babar Azam with a single hard-hitting round.
  • It doesn’t have to be half a century. If SKY saves India from a crisis with 30 ball 40s or helps India win the 4th T20, he will dethrone Babar.
  • Likewise, if Suryakumar scores half a century in Florida, he will surpass Babar Azam as he won’t play any games until India in the Asian Cup.
  • However, if Suryakumar fails to score points in the 4th T20, he will have another chance on Sunday in the 5th T20.

Since making their T20 debut against England with a Nataraj shot for 6 against Jofra Archer, SKY has become India’s integral part in white ball cricket. Although he didn’t have much success in the T20 World Cup, he ensured that he remains one of the first names in the squad. He slammed his first century T20I against England as India dominated Jos Buttler & Co.

With the 2022 Asian Cup and the T20 World Cup just around the corner, Suryakumar is considered India’s ace. It’s his flexibility to open, to hit at No. 3, 4, 5 and even 6 or 7 as a finisher that helps India decide the combination.
